Crew Training and Education

With a growing fleet as the one managed by Elite Maritime Limited, marine training is of the utmost importance in ensuring that our people are best prepared to meet the highest and latest international standards of seamanship and engineering skills. We are continuously investing time and money to increase the competence of our sailing staff. Our training policy is to ensure that all persons employed are trained to be highly competent in the duties they perform.

With this in mind, Elite Maritime Limited board of directors has established two maritime training centers. The pre-sea training center “International Maritime Academy” where 100 cadets pass out every year and absorbed in our fleet, and post sea training center “Bangladesh Maritime Training Institute” where STCW courses, simulation based and in house courses are conducted on a weekly basis.

International Maritime Academy

The first private maritime academy in the country approved by the Department of Shipping. Two years in the academy and one year at sea (total 36 months). 50 Nautical and 50 Engineering cadets passes out every year. As a responsible employer in the marine industry, Elite Maritime Limited is committed to the future in human resource development. It is our aim to constantly expand our pool of qualified senior and junior Officers to cover the future requirements of our customers’ needs. The cadets commit to a five year contract with Elite Maritime Limited after becoming certified officers to remain and sail with us. 1st , 2nd and 3rd batch IMA cadets are already serving on our managed vessels as 2nd officers.
